Huh? I don't follow.

'svn' already has an interrupt handler, and is constantly checking for
interrupt signals to exit gracefully. The problem you're describing is
a bug in neon (the http client library); when neon is in the middle of
processing a network request, it prevents svn from handling signals.
This bug is well-known, filed, and supposedly fixed in the next release
of neon. We're trying to push neon for a new release soon.

neon already has this. There's an http-timeout value in your
~/.subversion/servers file.
